Bio

Emerging from the seemingly quiet suburbs of Adelaide, Nakatomi’s approach to electronic music is unique and explosive. Tapping into the spirit of 80’s nu wave, 90’s grunge and some liberal helpings of modern electro pop, the duo combine big production with melodic nostalgia.

Taking influences from modern dance, retro synths, SCI-FI movies, Madonna and Pizza, Nakatomi team up pop hooks with dark indietronic dance vibes, punchy synths, lush arrangements and fully-charged vocals. Their frenetic and energetic live performances have gained them a reputation for putting on stadium style performances in any size space with an almost rock-enthused format… kind of like a live show TARDIS!

With their focus on creating an innovative and fun live act, Nakatomi have quickly become a key part of the Adelaide Electro scene, drawing attention from venues and touring acts alike, and racking up tons of great supports the likes of Miami Horror, Peking Duk, Nicole Millar, Asta, Wafia, Slumberjack, The Swiss, Sneaky Sound System, Tigertown and many more, and even slotting in as the opening act at Adelaide's Clipsal 500 and NYE concert in front of 20,000.

With the release of their next single Wooden Castle in October 2017, Nakatomi will be taking their live show on the road again, playing some local shows in their hometown of Adelaide in October and touring with Sad Grrrls Fest in November.

Electro-pop with a dark twist, reminds me a bit of Halsey!

Nakatomi have blessed us with Wooden Castle. A haunting and textured fabric that is layered beautifully. The vocal melody glamours you and you feel blissfully captive in its embrace. Then the hook kicks in and you feel that maybe you've been lead to a place that is beautiful but also deadly. This track strikes feelings of joy, love, pain, fear but most of all beauty. Awesome track.
